About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

My care provider was an older doctor working part time. He seemed uninterested in helping me recover other than just giving me the cortisone shot. He wasn't interested in talking about therapy afterwards, in fact when I mentioned it his reply was, "or you could just try doing normal things". The cortisone shot took 2 days to work and 2 days to stop working. I am back where I started and will not use this doctor again. I need someone who is interested in working with me to not only help me heal, but help me avoid further injury. The provider I saw is interested mainly in working part time and heading home.

[...] I went into the ER and was told that I had a pinched sciatica going down to my knee [...] I stopped at Dr. Durkan office to see if I could get a cortisone shot in my left knee, I did not have an appointment but he stopped and take time to see me and give me the shot. [...] I am getting better but slowly, knee is just starting to not hurt to much when I walk on it. I can almost stand straight with my back not hurting.
